It was my great pleasure to be one of the Doctoral Consortium Chairs at the ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction, in collaboration with Iolanda Leite:
We received a large number of high quality submissions and we selected 8 articles covering all aspects of Multimodal Interaction, from the analysis of human behaviour, to social robotics, Human Computer Interaction and cognitive ergonomics. All participants did a great job in sharing their results and plans towards the completion of their PhD. All of this with the help of several tutors that added significant value to the event (Sean Andrist, Anna Esposito, Mohamed Khamis, Simone Stumpf, Marynel Vazquez) by sharing their insight and experience about the work of the participants. The event included a final panel aimed at discussing different aspects of a research career.
